Set in the Prime Timeline, the USS Discovery (NCC-1031) and the USS Shenzhou (NCC-1227) explore the galaxy, 10 years before Kirk takes command of the Enterprise NCC-1701 (TOS).

STAR TREK: DISCOVERY will follow the voyages of Starfleet on their missions to discover new worlds and new lifeforms, and one Starfleet officer who must learn that to truly understand all things alien, you must first understand yourself.
